ATAC Aliums repairable?(2 posts)

I seem to have lost the dustcap from one of my ATAC Alium pedals. Because of this (or maybe not) the pedal now slides a few mm up and down the spindle. Because of that, the rubber rings at the crank interface are pretty chewed up.

Can I get replacement parts for this pedal? Or should I plan to get another set of the Carbons (sans dustcap)?

I suspect that the dustcap probably didn't cause the problem but did contribute. If you have play on the spindle then your bearing are bad... I would try repacking the bearings. From the looks of the aliums I think those are loose ball bearings (not cartridge style) and you should be able to get new bearings at your LBS. As for seals if o-ring then you can probably get replacement seals at your local Home Depot. If they are some kind of special seal (usually the case with pedals then maybe try Time USA?
